I am an Economist at the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.[1] Before joining the Board, I received a Ph.D. in Finance from Tilburg University (The Netherlands).

My main area of interest lies in the microstructure of financial markets (i.e., the analysis, design, and regulation of trading mechanisms). In my research liquidity, frictions, and trading intermediaries take center stage. In particular, I study corporate bond dealers in their role as liquidity providers in decentralized over-the-counter (OTC) markets.
